H week: plans

Here are the plans for H week:

word cards: happy, hat, hair, hiccup, home

By Shel Silverstein

I will not play at tug o’ war.
I’d rather play at hug o’ war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

Monday (social studies): Happy Birthday. We'll celebrate Uncle "Chihuahua" Scott's birthday by sending him an email and calling to sing to him.

Tuesday (nutrition): healthy foods. Alan and I have been trying to eat healthy lately and it's rubbing off on Connor. He talks about whether foods are healthy or not. We'll review this concept so that I can assess his understanding of it. We'll cut pictures of food from a magazine and sort them and glue them on paper.

Wednesday (scriptures/gospel): The Golden Rule. Doesn't start with H, but we didn't do it last week, so we'll try again this week. We can help make others happy!

(movement/activity): hopping. The doctor asked Connor to hop on one foot at his 3 year old well visit. He couldn't really do it without holding on to me. We'll practice hopping and doing other movements to some fun music. Maybe music by Hayden or something. And wearing different hats.

Friday: Happy Birthday again! We'll go to Porter's birthday party and have fun celebrating with him. (Can you tell I didn't really plan well for this week if we're doing Happy Birthday two days and Happy another day? I need to get back in preschool gear!)

Other H words that might come up or spark ideas for activities: handwashing (work on doing this really well; we sing Happy Birthday, dear clean hands while washing), homes (different kinds of homes people live in or animal homes/habitats), harvest, hippopotomus, hiccups

Weirdly, this post is not working correctly. Here's the second poem we're doing this week since it won't post at the top.

by: Shel Silverstein

Want to cure your hiccups quick?
Stick out your tongue and bite your lip.
Hold your breath and shake one hip,
Pull back your left foot and kick up.
Now, you see, we’ve cured your hiccup.
Nothing much to it—don’t you feel swell?
Oh well…
